“Sin leads to, even as it begins in, not only moral evil but also irrationality. Pharaoh’s men had declared, “knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed?” (v. 7). Have you not yet realized that you have destroyed Egypt? This Pharaoh refused to acknowledge more than momentarily. Then as now, men at war against God choose death, because they are the enemies of life. Igor Shafarevich has said of Marxism that it seeks the abolition of private property, the destruction of religion, the death of the family, and the death of man. Every form of unbelief is in pursuit of death to one degree or another. Wisdom declares always, as the expression of God’s being, “But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death” (Prov. 8:36).”
